Poets & Readers:

The Poetry Jam session will be held LIVE in person at the library.

This is freestyle poetry, so you may perform your poetry with props or instruments. If unsure, contact Luis Pulido at the Library.

The session will be between 60-75 minutes, with time slots for up to 10 poets.

You may either read your poetry from notes or recite from memory.

You will have 5 minutes to discuss and deliver your poem.  Please stick to this time limit to respect your fellow poets waiting their turn.

You may perform either your own poetry, or your interpretation of someone else's poetry, such as Keats, Poe, Wilde, etc.

In addition to the other poets in the session, there will be an audience of people watching as well.
